    Windows Update History Blank


    My Windows 10 downloaded and ran an update yesterday and I noticed that my Update History is blank (no updates have been installed yet). It was there before yesterday's update.

    My Winver is 1607 (OS Build 14393.1593).

    Any idea where the Update History went?

    By the way, the Creator's Update has not downloaded yet.

    I have included the Uninstall Listing which does show yesterday's updates.

    It also did a quick update this morning.

    All of my computers show the same, no updates listed after some of the newest get installed.

    That update was reported to have a known issue of clearing Windows Update history. It's also not uncommon for new builds to clear history.

    When it does that will also clear the update history. It also clears the windows updates list in control panel. This is to be expected because the 'update' is an upgrade to the next version of windows, so none of the previous updates to the old version are relevant any more.

    Right, the Version number is an Upgrade as in 1507 to 1511 to 1607 to 1703 while the Build update is similar to the older Service Packs.

    I've found routine updates can clear the update history but the updates can still be viewed in Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features \ View Installed Updates. I suspect the missing updates issue is just another example of poor software QA by Microsoft.

    I wonder if it's just a ploy by MS to not "appear" to be putting out too many upgrades. This way they get to "reset" them once in a while.
